Library Journal Review

Bodnar--a senior editor of Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine and, as "Dr. Tightwad," author of a nationally syndicated column--has written another wise and witty tome on teaching children financial responsibility. Similar to Dr. Tightwad's Money-Smart Kids, this new book gives advice on choosing an allowance, considering pay-for-chores, dealing with advertising, distinguishing wants from needs, answering questions on family finances, budgeting, and saving. Bodnar also points out that the most important part of teaching children the value of money is setting an example as a parent. The practical advice, web resources, and helpful organizations she presents will help parents deal with the demands of constant financial temptations and, at the same time, teach their children about money and choices. Public libraries will want to purchase this for parenting collections.--Susan C. Awe, Univ. of New Mexico Lib., Albuquerque (c) Copyright 2010.
